Directions
  1. Mix the coriander and cumin in a small bowl. Sprinkle the chicken slices with half of the mixture and set the other half aside. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper also.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet under medium high heat. Add all 3 peppers and onions. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 7-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer mixture to medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the same skillet and add chicken. Cover and let cook through, about 7 minutes per side.
  4. When chicken is white throughout, push to 1 side of skillet and add pepper mixture back into skillet. Season the peppers with the remaining coriander/cumin mixture and lime juice. Heat everything through, about 2-3 more minutes. You can either mix everything together or serve peppers alongside chicken separately.
